Integrated, open-source typesetting


The exporter Writer2LaTeX, which as the name suggests, converts Writer documents to LaTeX is now integrated into OpenOffice! I haven’t been using OOo, so I wasn’t aware of this. I like to use OpenOffice or Word for shorter documents and LaTeX for longer ones that need more structure.

The export is kind of sloppy, but it works. And since Microsoft is in the process of changing its formats, I’m getting kind of iffy about saving anything of any importance as a doc file, so OOo is looking better all the time.
